Derbyshire

County in England

The landscape of Derbyshire is made up of arable fields bordered by hedgerows and drystone walls, foothills crowned by ancient stone monuments, meandering rivers, historic market towns and isolated villages. The outstanding scenery prompted the Government to name a predominant part of the region, the Peak District, Britain's first National Park. The White and Dark Peak's provide a dramatic and solemn landscape, with brooding heather moors and barren limestone plateaus.

Derbyshire is recognised internationally for its contribution to the Industrial Revolution, in its development of factory systems. Richard Arkwright constructed the first successful, water-powered spinning mill in Cromford in 1771. Settlements were built around the mill, along with transport networks and river weirs. This factory township became a model for others throughout Britain and abroad. A great example of the early factory system can be found at the World Heritage site of the Derwent Valley Mills.

Derbyshire is home to many of the finest country houses in England, among them Chatsworth House, a popular visitor attraction, and the seat of the Duke of Devonshire. Use the links below for more information on the county. Alternatively, search for a district, town or parish within Derbyshire.
